When Amount Grantee Donors To be used for
16/09/2019 £5,929 BROMSGROVE AND REDDITCH NETWORK 2? Funding is requested for the Next Generation project which aims to encourage volunteering in young people under 25 years, particularly to develop employability skills. It will focus on Redditch which has some of the highest rates of deprivation in the area as well as the highest number of young people in the county. The core of the project will be peer encouragement and the use of social media to generate interest, as well as the Network’s usual routes for volunteering and engagement with local schools and colleges.
13/09/2019 £18,586 MOSELEY COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT TRUST 1? MAGC has operated for over five years run by volunteers in the community. The scheme has grown and developed over this time, adapting to the changing context and needs. As an organisation and project we feel this funding has come at just the right time. MAGC is at a critical point in its development. With the recruitment last year of the first direct member of staff, leading to an increase in the awareness of available grants to support individuals and an increase in trust in the support provided - we are at a stage where we need to adapt and invest in the structures and systems to be able to thrive into the future. The funding would enable us to free up other staff time within MCDT to take a more strategic review of the operation of MAGC and then to implement relevant changes in its operation and governance. The aim is that the scheme continues to be led and run by volunteers, but to adapt the scheme quickly and effectively at this stage we would benefit from a short term injection of resources and support. This will enable us to continue to strengthen the scheme and most importantly to properly review to ensure that it is best meeting the needs of individuals we are seeking to work with. The grant would pay for a range of support and training: investing in our volunteers and staff for the future; simplifying processes, systems and governance; and increasing community awareness.
13/09/2019 £25,000 WE:ARE Women's Empowerment And Recovery Educators 2? We want to support an increased number of women to be equipped with knowledge and skills to overcome barriers to lead the life they want as an active member of society. We know through our evaluation that our programmes support women to achieve their independence following domestic abuse, to seek employment/education or remain in employment/education and to have the confidence to support themselves in their own homes so our purpose is twofold: 1. to develop a hub and spoke model of the project. we are acutely aware that a large number of women cannot access our programmes due to travel issues. we are in the south of the city and some already travel on 3 buses to reach us. we support 57 women per week. Our plan would be to employ a worker that would allow our manager the time to develop and test the proposed model in the north of the city and to develop the key partnerships necessary to make it a success for vulnerable women and children and greatly increase our capacity to deliver programmes that have an impact. 2. To develop a volunteer model that would allow us support development for women with lived experience to become project facilitators and/or coaches to empower women to return to work and/or education and increase their economic well-being. Our project is run by women with lived experience and this model will also allow us to 'grow our own' in terms of future staff members.
13/09/2019 £17,575 GILGAL BIRMINGHAM 2? We are requesting a grant to seek support in drastically improving our sustainability during a challenging time of facing a significant fall in local authority financial support. We are eager to commit time and resources to review our current strategic approach including management processes and responsibilities, diversifying income sources and improving strategic positioning. An essential element of this efforts is to review our income streams, having been reliant on local authority support for many years including Housing Benefit payments and BCC ‘Supporting People’ contract, and plan for a more diverse and sustainable fundraising strategy and approach. We are aware that there have been opportunities both commercial and grant funded that we have not explored due to a lack of strategic focus on these areas, affecting our sustainability and is an organisational weakness during this financially challenging time. This timely support has been designed not only to provide us with not only the external support and knowledge we need to address our challenges and improve our approaches but also the internal staff time to explore opportunities and make changes required. The need for support and changes to our strategic approach is widely recognised by our senior staff and trustees and has been regularly discussed within our monthly Trustee meeting – however a lack of senior staff time has hampered progress. We are aware that we could be making better use of our Trustees time and skills, and this also forms part of the review we shall complete in this project.
13/09/2019 £22,392 SIFA FIRESIDE 5? Our proposed project is to develop an integral organisational communications plan. We will appoint a Communications Lead on a part time basis to help us to develop our communication plan. Our plan will help us to drive and communicate our vision and our core aims to prevent and reduce homelessness and help people to take back control of their lives. A dedicated Communications Lead will share our stories, successes, challenges and campaigns to raise the profile of our work enabling our CEO and other members of our Leadership team to actively contribute to our city’s strategic development around reducing homelessness, vulnerable housing and rough sleeping alongside ensuring our continued delivery. We are passionate about being significant contributors to homelessness prevention and reduction in the city, we have over 35 years’ experience in the city working with our client groups. Appointing a Communications lead to our team will streamline our communications to ensure consistent messages are communicated internally and externally to all stakeholders. Communications has been identified as a key strategic objective and it links to our organisational development plans helping us to increase fundraising appeals and develop committed giving products. It will help us engage with stakeholders including our clients; maximise our digital platforms; launch press programmes and develop our key messages linking directly to strategic objectives. Strengthening our infrastructure through clearer communications will improve and increase delivery outcomes for our clients: Increasing income, increased client engagement ensuring continued relevance and raised profile.
31/08/2019 £9,000 INSIGHT - COUNSELLING COACHING AND SUPPORT SERVICES 2? Funding is requested for their early intervention work; funding restrictions and policy, both locally and nationally, mean that services for high risk clients are a priority, especially with statutory related sources. However, Insight know that early work either with victims or perpetrators, focusing on education, coping strategies and understanding “triggers” can prevent a crisis later. £9,000 is requested and the grant will pay for around 10 sessions of free therapy for each client, their initial assessment and supervision costs, In total 20 clients are expected to benefit from this, which is £450 per capita but reflects the specialist support provided.
31/08/2019 £18,778 WATCH (Working Actively To Change Hillfelds) Ltd 4? This project would support WATCH to develop a sustainable business plan that fulfils the needs of residents and redevelopment of the neighbourhood. The project will support WATCH to develop a more strategic alliance with local organisations and agencies and map out details of other projects and services available in the area. This will help to reduce duplication of projects and services and create new partnerships opportunities among agencies and residents groups and provide sustainable projects and services that will address issues and improve the social and economic lives of people living and working in Hillfields. Reviewing and developing the charities infrastructure will grow the day to day business of the organisation to coincide with the many changes occurring within the voluntary and public sector and encompass new initiatives for Coventry as the City of Culture in 2021. Through consultation and feedback from 85 service users, residents and local businesses they feel this project is needed to ensure the long term sustainability of this much needed support for the local community. Eight residents and three members of WATCH charity have agreed to take up roles as champion volunteers, and participate in the activities of the project. This will also creating a platform to share knowledge, expertise and experiences to ensure best practice and a joined up people centred approach is developed and implemented through community engagement.
31/08/2019 £5,000 THE TIN MUSIC AND ARTS 1? to support 3 aspects, Coventry Music Network, Boudica Festival and Deliaphonic.
31/08/2019 £6,289 SANDWELL VISUALLY IMPAIRED 2? Funding is requested for the full costs of a pilot support service, both face-to-face and by telephone, which will aim to counter the difficulties that VI people have in accessing services, particularly online services by offering practical support, for instance to complete forms. They have found that this is something they are increasingly asked for help with and that they need to offer a discrete service for this, so the staff have the appropriate training and expertise and it can be run at specific times. Volunteers will also be trained to offer this service.
31/08/2019 £10,000 Street Teams 9? unding is requested for the Family and Sibling project, which is unique in its support of families affected by sexual exploitation; helping them through the statutory process, aiming to reduce the stress and anxiety they feel, as well as helping families to identify their vulnerabilities and how to reduce the risk of exploitation.
31/08/2019 £24,531 Anawim Women Working Together 6? Anawim’s website is not fit for purpose. It exists on a platform which requires specific technical knowledge to be properly maintained, so we are unable to update its content, post regular job and volunteer vacancies, or use it to promote services and demonstrate impact. This project involves the development of a new website which can be easily maintained. Our internal CRM system, CiviCRM, which holds data for our women, will be integrated with the new site, allowing us to streamline manual processes such as referrals and course registrations, freeing up capacity for staff. We will increase our income generation through advertising new projects including renting out space at the centre and individual giving. Bringing Anawim’s work to a wider audience and an improved user experience combined with more informative and engaging content will encourage more donations and interest from potential funders, partners and volunteers, as well as women seeking support. As an organisation we are currently working to create a sustainability strategy, which falls in line with Anawim’s mission and core activities. The main focus areas are: diversifying our income streams and improving visibility within the community, supporting more women through courses, drop in and outreach services, and encouraging volunteers and service users to take more ownership of the centre through higher level responsibilities. We are considering how we can sustain a high level of service with resources already in place and how we can support more women in a cost-effective way.

16/07/2019 £10,983 B: RAP LTD 6? Since December 2018, brap has been delivering Building a Stronger Britain Together-funded workshops to 16-18 year olds across colleges in Birmingham. Workshops have been facilitated using a method called process work, which allows deeper conversations with young people who are particularly susceptible to far-right or Islamist extremism. Process work is a psychotherapeutic approach to dialogue that recognises the central role emotions play in the formation of views. Our use of this method reflects the fact that extremism is driven by emotion (fear, isolation, anxiety) and that we need facilitation techniques that surface these emotions to help people deal with them and build resilience to extremism, whilst understanding how their beliefs were formed. Since running this project, we have been overwhelmed by demand for these sessions and are therefore looking to work with other organisations. In particular, we would like to respond to requests to work with a younger cohort (Key Stage 4). Additionally, we’ve been asked by schools/youth organisations in Coventry to deliver sessions to young people there. We are attracted to the idea of trialling process work in a new local authority area, but appreciate there are a number of challenges to this (see below). As such, we’re looking for funding to: - work with Birmingham colleges/schools to deliver six workshops to approximately 60 people aged 14-18 - pilot and evaluate four workshops in Coventry to approximately 40 people aged 14-18 - deliver a youth practitioner workshop to disseminate learning arising from this work Project objectives: - Increase resilience to extremism by helping 14-18 year olds reflect on how their beliefs about politics, religion and gender are formed - Promote belonging by exposing the cohort to different views and help them understand more about their peers - Help students promote values such as equality and decrease 'segregation' within their college

WATCH has supported thousands of marginalised individuals into work or training creating positive life changing benefits.

31/01/2017 £50,000 The Feast Youth Project 3? The Feast is committed to building stronger and more integrated communities, by investing in young people and giving them the resources and experiences that will enable them to live well together. We are seeking funding and in-kind resources to enable our staff and volunteers to reach more young people, running programmes that help them to grapple with their identity and the complex and emotive differences that surround them, and inviting them to participate in youth encounter programmes with peers they would not normally have an opportunity to connect with. To do this we want to secure and equip Development Workers in all four of our working UK locations, or what will become The Feast Hubs, who will lead local teams, nurture partnerships, recruit and support volunteers and raise capacity for the long term impact in their communities. This application acknowledges that our greatest need is to establish these key positions, with seed-funding and associated communications resources, that would enable them to raising ongoing profile, income and support to sustain the work. The Feast has teams located in four UK locations - Birmingham, Bradford and Keighley, Tower Hamlets and Luton. These communities share many challenges that come with significant cultural and faith diversity, such as different groups tending to congregate together around their similarities, leading to isolation and many growing up with parallel lives. Our work centres around young people who come from minority backgrounds, such as from South Asian or African and Caribbean ethnicities, and of the Muslim, Sikh and Hindu faiths. However as our approach is to connect with others who are different, we also need to network widely with majority communities such as white British and those who hold the Christian faith, or no faith at all. With Development Workers in place, leading local teams, The Feast will be able to establish the necessary profile and trust with community leaders which is vital in order to work with many different groups of young people. This would include winning faith and youth leaders to the benefits and importances of connecting outside their faith and culture, negotiating access to and delivering bespoke programmes for schools, raising new income from local donors and grant funders, coordinating and delivering youth work, and celebrating the stories of positive change. The Feast believes that by focusing on teenagers and enabling them to gain the skills and confidence to live well with difference at an early age, that when adults they will be much better prepared to face the challenges of diverse societies. We have also clearly seen the potency of working with young people to change their community. A young person who has been impacted by our programmes, with increased self-awareness and confidence in their identity, and having experienced a positive and uplifting encounter with peers from a different faith or cultures, leads directly to change in their families and faith group. Their personal stories are much more likely to confront prejudices and fears, especially when amplified by intentional sharing with, than outsiders speaking in.
31/01/2017 £43,000 SINCE 9/11 1? Grant funding will support us to develop and extend our high quality educational offer to a wider range of schools. We would like to request in-kind support and grant funding to assist us through two specific projects: Project 1: Improve the reach of our existing materials to secondary schools across the country, sharing our high quality free resources more widely. To achieve this, we are seeking a) in-kind support through social media training to boost our online presence, support us in creating new social media content aimed at teachers and help us develop in-house knowledge about effective social media campaign work, and b) grant funding to allow us to offer more teacher workshops and school assemblies. To date our resources have been downloaded over 50,000 times but many schools are unaware of the full programme we offer and we think that improved presence online and in person will address this gap. Project 2: Extend our Education Programme content, keeping the existing materials up to date and producing new materials tailored for younger age groups. Grant funding will enable us to buy in specialist support to draft, trial and evaluate new lessons and support for teachers aimed at improving the ability of primary school teachers in discussing contentious issues and promoting respect and tolerance. Survey data indicates that primary schools are lagging far behind secondary schools in feeling equipped to address extremism concerns.

31/01/2017 £42,150 The Amirah Foundation 5? We believe that extremism flourishes within communities that feel oppressed or repressed, where individuals or groups lack power, and where there is an absence of freedom or open, forward looking discussions. Muslim women, especially those who have regularly experienced abuse in their homes, are often totally defined by servitude, and social isolation. These women have rarely if ever had the opportunity or space to consider their “Britishness” or how that Britishness sits within their own Muslim identity. This project will target those women. It will be a 12-month programme of activities to work with over 500 Muslim women from all ethnicities, ages and cultures to identify our shared values, commonalities and civic pride. The project will have 4 key elements: • I Am British – a monthly interview & article on social media • Visits to places of National and local pride • Monthly Workshops (presentation and discussion) • A British Muslim Women Showcase PLACES OF INTEREST: We will organise and engage up to 50 women each month in a 10-month programme of social activities including visits to amazing British spaces such as the Victoria and Albert Museum, The National Trust, and Buckingham Palace. We will also include visits to places of interest in Birmingham such as the Barber Institute, the Library of Birmingham & Soho House. The trip will include a tour guide and coach discussion about the place and encourage women to learn about their shared heritage. WORKSHOPS: Each month we will have a workshops with short presentations from writers, artists, designers, cooks and other leading women, alongside a discussion about Britishness. Each workshop we expect to engage around 20 women and feedback will contribute to our project evaluation and social media blog. ARTICLE: we have a following of thousands of women on social media and each month we will write an article about Britishness as a Muslim woman (using our contacts with leading British Muslims) we will engage and ask others for opinions and contributions. SHOWCASE: at the end of the year we will host a showcase celebration British Muslim women. We will include fashion, writing, poetry, spoken word, music, food and dance contributed by women throughout the year. This event will be open to all and will represent a plethora of cultures and ethnicities sharing a single shared identity: our Britishness.

31/01/2017 £14,400 Coventry Ethnic Minorities Action Partnership 1? The project will be based on a pilot prevent project CEMAP delivered funded by the Home office in January 2016 based on the Home Office recognised good practise model from an organisation in Derby which was modified to benefit women in Coventry. The project involves running 16 workshops to women from the BAME community who are interested in the wellbeing and safety of their young children and young people in their community and in becoming more empowered mothers, sisters and daughters. The overall aim of the project will be to increase awareness of the effects of extremism and empower women to reduce likelihood of extremism occurring in their families and wider community. 40 women from the BAME community will be split into 2 groups and training will be provided in a very sensitive manner in order to reduce the likelihood of young people getting involved in extremism. Our 16 workshops will be provided by an empowered facilitator who has already established trust and confidence in the community and will cover the following areas to reduce extremism in a very deprived area in the city. Workshops will cover following areas and more: 1) Shared values, community cohesion and active citizenship 2)How young people get involved in extremism i.e via social media and the internet 3)Understanding of the impact of extremism in your family and community. 4)How to identify vulnerable young people in the family and community and what makes children vulnerable 5)Your role as Mother, Daughter and sister in protecting your family and local community 6)Understanding and recognising and responding to early warning signs of extremism. 7)Where to go for appropriate advice and support for your children when they have issues that causes you concern. 8) Focus group to ensure that wider outcomes are met and also to build into the project issues that arise during the workshops. These will cover matters such as: What are the issues facing your communities What pushes and pulls children away from their family; What do you need to help you in recognising and responding to warning signs of radicalisation. The aim of this project is to ensure that mothers who often have the greatest influence on their children have a better understanding and awareness of the dangers of extremism, understand how to identify and prevent extremism in their family occurring and become more confident in dealing with extremism within their family and community. The wider impact is to reduce extremism within one of the most deprived areas in Coventry where young people are more likely to be involved. At all times we will be working in partnership with our local prevent co-ordinator to ensure that we have up to date intelligence of what is happening in the city and how we as an organisation can help to reduce extremism within the groups that we work with. We will also be working in partnership with community groups, voluntary organisations and multi-faith groups to ensure we are more inclusive and accessible. We will be inviting local partners like the community officers so that women feel more confident with talking to official bodies about any concerns they have and to build their trust and confidence in public officers. :
